Corporate relations director, Guinness Nigeria Plc., Viola Graham-Douglas, has commended the Aba Fire Service, Police Departments as well as the community and neighbouring companies for their swift response and assistance in containing the fire that occurred recently at the Aba Plant.
She disclosed that the fire, which did not affect any of the buildings on site, was swiftly contained and put under control by men of the Aba Fire Service Department with assistance from neighbouring companies.
She stated this in a statement sent to LEADERSHIP. According to her, “Fortunately, there were no injuries or major material loss resulting from the incident as the Aba premises currently serves as a logistics centre with few personnel on site. Our major production operations take place in our Benin and Ogba Breweries.
‘‘As we continue to investigate the cause of the fire incident, we say a very big thank you to the Aba Fire Service and Police Departments as well as the community and neighbouring companies for their swift response and assistance in containing the fire.
“We also thank everyone who was supportive and reached out to us during the incident,” Graham-Douglas added.
She said that Guinness Nigeria remains committed to ensuring the health and safety of the employees and the communities where “we operate and will continue to maintain this standard.”
